Google Glass And Alternatives

Do not join the race for Google glass right away…You could do yourself a favor by taking a few minutes off  before you act… Trust me you will not regret yourdecision.

Now what is Google glass? It is a controversial wearable technology with an optical head-mounted display (OHMD). Google Glass displays information in a smartphone-like hands-free format. It was developed by Google with the mission of producing a mass-market ubiquitous computer.It still does turn heads and make you a walking wonder.You are constantly bombarded with questions like how do you feel wearing it? How does it work and perhaps some may even request you to let them try it on…  Do you think Google Glass And Alternatives will stand together in the world market ?

Google Glass And Alternatives

                A reality in life .

Well it is  extremely popular and tops market with latest  and  best technology .. is the number one in Wearable computers. The look  and features draws attention immediately.It has an acceptable resolution and the subtle style appeals to all. But  it is not without any competition.A whole lot of competitors claiming same features and  better options have entered the market. 

Google provides four prescription frame choices for $225.00 U.S  free with the purchase of any new Glass unit. It is necessary to remove a small screw in order to move the Google Glass from one frame to another. Google entered in a partnership with the Italian eyewear company Luxottica, owners of the Ray-Ban, Oakley, and other brands, to offer additional frame designs

Though the service is great, the price is  exhorbitantly high  for an average  person  which  drives many to  think of alternative solutions… I suggest a few such alternatives… for a quick reaction

Google Glass And Alternatives

     some examples 

1. Sony Smart Eyeglass – while Sony’s smartphone division hasn’t exactly been on the up-and-up, the company still isn’t afraid to try its luck down new roads. Sony today announced its own heads-up-display-packing wearable, known as Smart Eyeglass. The headset, which is designed to pair with Android smartphones, offers a built-in camera and several sensors.

Much like Google Now-powered Android Wear smartwatches, Sony’s new head-mounted wearable is designed to provide the user with context-aware information, right when they need it. The device makes use of a CMOS image sensor, coupled with an accelerometer, gyroscope, electronic compass, brightness sensor and a microphone.

As you might expect from a head-mounted wearable, there’s also a camera on board (3 megapixels). SmartEyeglass is technically compatible with smartphones and tablets running Android 4.1+, but you’ll need to be running the more recent 4.3 release onwards to make full use of the wearable’s camera.

2. The Optinvent ORA is similar to Google Glass in many ways: it displays notifications, uses a similar form factor and projects a floating display in front of your face. However, the ORA promises a much brighter, larger and crisper display for a cheaper price. Optinvent claims the ORA’s display area is three times the size of Glass’ transparent screen, and it also shines at 3,000 nits bright. That’s much brighter than other wearable displays such as the Vuzix M100, which features a 2,000-nit screen. 

 

 

3. The Vuzix M100- It claims to be the world’s first commercially available pair of smart glasses. The $1,000 wearable Android computer comes with a WQVGA color display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, 4GB of onboard storage and 1GB of RAM. It runs on a TI-OMAP 4430 processor, which is believed to be the same chip found inside Google Glass. There’s a 5-MP camera up front, and Vuzix touts its heads-up display as an optimal choice for consumers and industrial workers alike.

 

4. The Meta Pro – This is about so much more than just bringing notifications to your face. The $3,000 smart goggles offer full-blown augmented reality (AR) while also allowing wearers to interact with the world in a new way. During our hands-on session, we drew 3D models by extending our hands and manipulating the images we saw before our eyes.

 

5. Moverio BT-200 glasses-  Epson is seeking to bring a mix of augmented reality and gaming to your face. The glasses project images and video onto the world around you, but aren’t meant for “always on” usage like Glass and others on this list. The Moverio BT-200 is better suited for specific use cases, such as playing a game or viewing media while traveling.

 

6.ChipSiP Smart Glass-  Taiwanese original design manufacturer ChipSiP’s prototype may look more like Google Glass than any device we’ve seen yet. Like Glass, the headset resembles a pair of eyeglasses, but without the lenses. An arm extends along the side to support the device’s prism display, similar to Google’s wearable computer.

Few more words about Google Glass And Alternatives – how they compete with Google Glass?

Since most of them are in market their parent companies  are in search of finding better options to be fit in to their later versions, hoping to cut down Google bash.

What is the future of Smart Glass- Like Smart phones this also will be popular and will become every part of the world.  Google has to face stiff competition which is not a good news especially if they concentrate on single market… while letting the rest of their products to slip away
